I had to thin the herd. A house deal came up short notice that was too good to pass up and I was a little short of cash. I had to let go of three nice basses.... 1990 MIJ Fender Standard Jazz Bass (fretless 4-string, J/J Fender Noiseless pickups, J-Retro preamp, basswood body & an unlined rosewood fingerboard) 2000 Peavey Millennium Plus (5-string, J/MM, flamed maple top, alder body & pau ferro fingerboard) 2001 MTD Beast (5-string, poplar body, J/J, wenge fingerboard, added a Bartolini HR-NT3Z9BA (Grendel) preamp to this one) To some of you I know I that what I listed above is nothing earth shattering but that they were all great sounding, fun to play axes. They will be missed... :moment of silence for the departures: After the moves were made I was left with the following..... 2001 Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass (4-string, J/J, natural ash body & rosewood fingerboard.) 2000 Peavey Millennium Plus (4-string, J/MM, flamed maple top, alder body & maple fingerboard) 2001 Peavey Cirrus (5-string, bubinga top, 2 soap bar humbuckers, walnut body, pau ferro fingerboard) 2001 MTD Grendel (5-string, J/J, flame maple top, poplar body, maple fingerboard) This is the first time that I had ever had to make this type of decision and it was hard as I truly liked each of the basses that are no longer here. After the sales and completing the house deal, I spent a little time crying about it here. Overall, I think that I am still in pretty good shape and I feel no urge to GAS for replacements at this time. Maybe the brew helped. Would any of you have decided any differently?
